      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

[TR] KY/TN/NC - Good times, great oldies 4/8/2012

Trip: KY/TN/NC - Good times, great oldies

 

Date: 4/8/2012

 

Trip Report:

Since leaving my beloved Cascades for the East Coast, I’ve been getting into this whole “cragging” thing. I’ll take an alpine summit anyday, but hitting the cliffs for some convenient pitches sure is fun. Here are some shots from “local” crags we’ve checked out the last few months.

 

Tennessee Wall

Near Chattanooga, TN. 95% Trad, 100% Cool

King’s Bluff, TN

 

My new local crag, this beauty sits about ten miles from the house. Mostly sport, few trad gems. Last Saturday, Ben and I climbed 26 routes here. Good local challenge, done in Luke Gullberg’s memory (who was 26 when he passed away on Mt Hood).

Linville Gorge, NC

 

This place is the heat! Check out Table Rock for accessible 2-4 pitch routes, and The Amphitheater for inaccessible 3-5 pitch routes. Found a new favorite East Coast route on The Daddy, 5.6.
